A guide to World War Two 'Invasion to liberation' - Map
Western Europe September 1939 to March 1945
A Guide to the Second World War in Europe is an invaluable aid to anyone wishing to gain an overview of the enormity of military operations in Western Europe, or to visit the battlefields of this theatre. The historical side expertly deals with the complexity of 'blitzkrieg' and the uncertainty of mechanised warfare on two maps.
One map covers in chronological sequence, the invasion of the German Army in May 1940, while the other deals with the events of the Normandy Landings in June 1944 and the battles which occurred before the frontiers of Germany were crossed. Major battles are described; information on the progression to war, the war in the air and at sea is included along with relevant photographs and information on the events and main protagonists.
The tourist guide on the reverse side contains enlarged and detailed maps of the main battlefields and the location of military cemeteries, memorials and museums and information on these. Many Footstep Maps photographs of the battlefields and other sites of interest are included.
